Intel Core i7-4712MQ is an integrated (soldered onto the motherboard) high-end processor released in the second quarter of 2014. It is part of the “Haswell” generation and operates at a base frequency of 2.3GHz. If a higher frequency is needed, its four cores can overclock and reach 3.3GHz.
The chip is equipped with 1MB of second level cache and 6MB of third level cache. The Core i7- 4712MQ has been developed using a 22nm process, allowing for the integration of the Intel HD Graphics 4600 controller. It operates at a base frequency of 400MHz, while Turbo Boost can increase that to 1200MHz. Power consumption of the whole SoC (System on a Chip) amounts to 37 watts with a maximum operating temperature of 100C.
Intel Core i7-4712MQ supports TurboBoost (increasing the clock frequency when necessary), HyperThreading (additional virtual core for every physical one), PCI Express 3.0, DDR3L 1333/1600 memory, AVX, AVX2, FMA, Quick Sync and the SSE4 instruction set.
